Moved to the Army List Forum for Hordes of Chaos. -Koosh
Hello, I plan to start a Hordes of Chaos army starting with Tzeentch. This is my list:
Exalted of Tzeentch- 172
Chaos Warriors 156
Knights of Change#1 182
Knights of Change#2 182
Any comments are appreciated.

Overall, I don't like the Tzeentch Lore for heroes, I think it is unreliable and difficult to cast for a hero. I usually advise people to stay away from the Tzeentch Lore until they get a lord to cast with.
Small units of knights will have difficulty taking ranked units, due to being outnumbered, and fighting enemy ranks. If they lose a combat, they drop their banners and award VP. They should probably be treated as flankers, and lose the banners.
I'd say the army would be a lot stronger with some maneuvering elements, to take out shooting threats and run the enemy around longer while you cast your magic. I'd drop a unit of knights entirely to get some screamers, furies, hounds, and/or marauder horsemen.
Given that you have 7 PD, only 2 spells to spend them on, and can only cast with a MAX of 2 dice, I'd say a spell familiar would be a worthwhile investment. Or dropping your PD down and picking up more units.
Arena of Death Champion: Nexim of the Guldskullz Tribe. Fear my wrath!
Rather small a Chaos Warrior regiment; you don't have to field models in the number that's in the boxed set. I'd suggest equipping them with shields to give them a good 4+ armour save to help them last longer than they overwise would without them.
Make one of the Knights units bigger and scrap the other for either Furies or Warhounds for screening/warmachine-hunting purposes.
Personaly I would keep both knight regiments, but you gota do some tweaks. Firstly you can use 6 dice BUT your stuck with the spells you get in other words you roll a 1 and a 2 your stuck and your in a bit of trouble. I would sugest dropping 2 warriors (reducing to 10) and buying sheilds for your regiment, also a spell familiar with fix you spell problem, that gives you 3 spells that way at worst you will get have mabey a 6 a 1 and a 2. Thats the worst in my opinion but anything else and your fine.
